That article pissed me off. Some people just don't know when to shut their mouths. If my younger sister got married before me, I wouldn't find it a problem unless my family started pulling the whole "you're getting old - time to marry" BS with me. I am only 23, but the pressure is already on me to get married to my long-term boyfriend. I am confident that when we are ready (not to mention he is older) that we will get married. I'm not expiring or anything, so I wish people would cool it!

All my brothers and sisters are married, and I am the last remaining single in the family. My seven-years-younger sister was the last to get married, a year and a half ago. At her wedding I got the standard "so when are you and x getting married?" (I was engaged at the time, but nobody knew it wasn't going so well). A bottle or two of champagne (also no glasses required) with the wedding party and all was well.

Holy cow! What a family! I don't think I would have shown the restraint that the writer showed to her family. Whatever happened to politely wishing someone well? However, this was the best part of the piece-- "One night, when I casually said, 'I'm freezing,' my Dad replied, 'You need wine or a boyfriend to keep you warm.' Really, dad? Then pop open a bottle of Merlot for me, please. No need for a glass." Annie seems pretty darn cool.

My younger sister is quite a bit younger than me, so unless something crazy happens like I break up with my man right around the time that I think I'd be getting married, and she gets married crazy early, it wouldn't happen. So it depends on the circumstances if I'd "care" - but even if it affected me, I'd still be happy for her.
